Here Are 11 Things About Arizona That Visitors Always Find Astounding
One of the things I love most about Arizona is that it is a land of extremes. For example, our weather is generally predictable but can get pretty wild and the landscape is beautiful but could easily kill you. These kinds of facts always seem to take visitors to our state by surprise and today we’re taking a look at a few things that might be the most surprising for people who have never stepped foot in Arizona.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
